Teaching Linguistics

Good news: A new LSA publication, the journal Teaching Linguistics, is to be launched formally at the LSA meeting in January (congratulations to the founding Editor, Kazuko Hiramatsu!). This innovative, open access e-journal is adopting a cc licensing model (Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike), with options for authors to choose more or less restrictive licenses, and is responding to a critical, longstanding need in the linguistics community by focusing on pedagogy and by defining its scope to include, among other areas, interdisciplinary, undergraduate, and graduate teaching and learning; qualitative and quantitative approaches; professional development for graduate students; and linguistics in higher education. I’ve committed to supporting the endeavor as an Editorial Board member and look forward to the first issue with much anticipation!
